The Yankees' most pressing task is securing the services of ace CC Sabathia for 2012 and beyond, but Robinson Cano would like his future to be the next item on the agenda.

Yanks Preparing Their Pitch To CC

From George A. King III: The Yankees have put together a contract proposal for CC Sabathia the left-handed ace will receive shortly. Will it be good enough for Sabathia to not opt out of the final four years and $92 million left on his deal and become a free agent? Sabathia has until three days after the World Series ends to make his decision. While retaining Sabathia to front...

(Photo) Daily News’ Photoshop Has Sabathia Wearing A Red Sox Jersey

Oh, New York Daily News, why must you torment New York Yankees fans in such a way? See, it’s funny because, given the economics of it all and despite a lengthy story pondering the possibility, there is likely no chance the Boston Red Sox would ever sign CC Sabathia should the ace ever opt out [...]

CC Sabathia in a Red Sox Uniform

The New York Daily News posted this picture yesterday with an article speculating on whether the Red Sox would attempt to sign Sabathia if he pulled an A-Rod and opted out of his long term contract.

Red Sox Fans Need to Forget About Boston Signing C.C. Sabathia

The Boston Red Sox had a tumultuous end to the 2011 MLB season, and their offseason has not improved the mood or feelings in Beantown as of yet. Following the greatest September collapse in baseball history, the Red Sox have helped push some key members out the door. First, it was manager Terry Francona, although the team will put the spin on it that it was mutual. While Francona...

CC Sabathia May 'Be Lured to Red Sox' This Offseason, Says New York Media

When new Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington announced that John Lackey will undergo Tommy John surgery this offseason and would likely miss the entire 2012 season, it became painfully obvious that the team absolutely needed to acquire a top-notch starter this offseason. However, the Sox aren't the only ones reeling from the Lackey news, as the New York Daily News' Anthony...
